The cutting-edge hair

November 10, 2015

Hair

For years now engineers have been trying to find the best use of 3D printers. From earthly attempts with jewellery and prosthetics to stellar ones, like sending it into space to print spare parts for the International space station, no real breakthrough has been achieved. Up until now.

Carnegie Mellon University researchers with the generous support from giants like Google and Yahoo developed a technique to print hair. By using standard 3D printer and a special software, the team succeeded to create fine plastic threads that look like hair.  Just like the real strands they can be brushed, curled and braided. Since plastic can be printed into different thickness and colour, now hair extensions can become even more widespread. What more could you ask from the cutting-edge technology?
